My Gingerbread house 2009

This year I wanted to make my Gingerbread house a little more “simple”, only decorating it with white royal icing. I have used different styles of piping details inspired by the Gingerbread houses from Martha Stewart. It is very Scandinavian, I think ;-)

Like last year, I have added electric lights inside the house and I think it looks so charming when the lights burst out through the windows. I always give the Gingerbread house to my MIL and she only just threw out, last years gingerbread house a couple of month ago. So I am a bit excited, to see how long she will keep this one :-)

Happy Caking and Merry Christmas to all of you!

    Happy Holidays and New Year!

    Could I ask you about tiered cakes? How do you stack them on top of each other without getting them to crack or ‘sink’
